Tenerife boasts numerous beaches covering the entire shore of the island. They are characteristic for their black volcanic sand, and the water is very shallow in certain areas. The most popular beaches of Tenerife include Las Americas, Playa Duque, Playa de la Arena, Playa los Gigantes, Playa Los Cristianos, Playa Roja and many more. The most popular beaches are situated in the south.
Playa Las Américas is one of the main and most visited beaches of Tenerife. The beach is mostly visited by younger tourists and is considered a beach that is active 24 hours a day, as it is home to parties day and night. The youth go to the beach for its hedonistic qualities; a specially designated area of 1km in length is riddled with night clubs, cabare bars, live music spots, shops and restaurants. If you like peace and quiet, this beach may not be the place for you. Bear in mind that many tourists who are housed in other areas of the island come to this bustling beach before returning to a more peaceful area where their accommodation of choice is located.
Los Cristianos is an exquisite resort, perfect if you are looking for beautiful beaches and peaceful turquoise waters on the sunny shore of Tenerife. This fisherman’s village has become a very successful tourist spot, popular among fans of sunlight who bask in the sun for hours on the soft golden sand. The sea is very calm and there is a shallow-water area that makes the beach attractive to families with kids. Sun beds and parasols cover the entire beach, bars and huts that sell food and drinks are also abundant in the area. In addition to this, the beach also has several showers. Beach volleyball courts are also available, as well as a wonderful promenade especially attractive for afternoon walks.
Fanabe Beach belongs to the Adeje area, one of the most expensive areas on Tenerife, which boasts many 4 and 5-star hotels. The longest beach on Tenerife is located in this area. Along the beach itself, there are many restaurants and bars which offer visitors cover from sunlight. The beach has no natural shade from the sun, so we recommend that our visitors bring their own parasols if they don’t want to rent them at the beach itself. The beach is covered in yellow and black sand.
Playa del Duque is an exquisite beach situated in Adeje in the south of Tenerife. The entire era is an exclusive resort, and the beach doesn’t lack the status either. Take a walk along the golden sand, feel it between your toes, take a swim in the warm, crystal clear water, relax in the comfortable sun beds in the great sun, while listening to the sound of waves that gently wash over the shore. Pure enjoyment! The Playa del Duque is perfect for fans of beaches. It is the winner of the blue flag, an award given to those beaches that are very clean and that fit the high standards regarding variety of available content. The beach is popular among tourists who enjoy a peaceful environment.
Playa de la Arena is a resort situated south from Los Gigantes and Puerto Santiago on the western shore of Tenerife. Near Los Gigantes, the cliff of Giants, a beautiful black sand beach is situated. The beach is covered completely in naturally black volcanic sand. The beach is one of the cleanest beaches on the island, and has received many European blue flags for its cleanliness. This beach is part of the fisherman town of Los Gigantes which became popular in the 1970s.
